Posted on: 06/08/2005 01:01 PM

A dbus security update is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: dbus security update.
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:102-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-102.html
Issue date: 2005-06-08
Updated on: 2005-06-08
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0201
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated dbus packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

D-BUS is a system for sending messages between applications. It is used both for the systemwide message bus service, and as a per-user-login-session messaging facility.

Dan Reed discovered that a user can send and listen to messages on another user's per-user session bus if they know the address of the socket. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0201 to this issue. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, the per-user session bus is only used for printing notifications, therefore this issue would only allow a local user to examine or send additional print notification messages.

Users of dbus are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system:
